Here’s a list of the resolved/answered questions I’ve posted so far in the CALLS FOR HELP category here on the blog:
1) Yes, Allen Ginsberg was at the PopMart Tour news conference in 1997. MTV even recorded Ginsberg reciting the lyrics to “Miami.” Sherry L. from @U2 helped on this one.
2) With your help, I’ve placed the 1992 “naked interview” in mid-February, not March as was reported.
3) With your help, I’ve placed the Bono-Dylan songwriting of “Love Rescue Me” (AKA “Prisoner of Love”) in either April, 1987, or November, 1987 — or possibly both if the song was unfinished in April.
4) With your help, I’ve figured out that Rattle and Hum was released on VHS around February 28/March 1, 1989.
5) Sherry also helped with pinpointing the airing of the Zoo TV 3-part TV series on MTV as April, 1997.
6) With your help, I’ve got the location of the Mary J. Blige/U2 “One” video shoot as the “Teatro Ferrocarrilero” (Railroad Theatre) in Mexico City.
Thanks so much for all the great help!!! You guys rock. :)
